San Francisco Wedding Invitations


Spring Stationery from Crane & Co. From Hyegraph

First day of Spring in San Francisco started with some Spring showers. Spring showers mean pretty cards & stationery. It’s always fun writing a little note or receiving one in the mail. My teenage daughter and her cousins started to correspond regularly by mail from San Francisco to Boston. At first neither one were even aware of purchasing stamps and the correct envelopes nor each other’s addresses. After the first notes they got the hang of it. Now, we get little notes with heart stickers on the envelopes, fun pictures with drawings inside.

No matter what year we’re in, communication via mail has a special place. This is the only way to actually send physical objects and not mere images. Soon, my daughter and niece will be taking the plane to visit. They are making plans and have to-do lists, places to visit and fun activities to share.

Although this young generation of teens face-time daily, they’ve found that sending each other notes with words of inspirations via mail adds an anticipation and physical reminder of their relationship and care for each other. I am sure when they do get together their time will be marked by postcards and scrapbook archiving the time spent together.

Here are some fun notes you can pick up this Spring and all year round at our little store at the Embarcadero Center location.

Example One: Letterpress Plum Blossom Note Card

Letterpress Plum Blossom Note $19.00 per box

Example Two: Letterpress Sunflower Note Card


Letterpress Sunflower Note Card $19.00 per box

Example Three: Great Horned Owl Note Card

Great Horned Owl Note Card $19.00 per box

All the above cards along with many other styles can be found at Hyegraph in San Francisco. Check out our site for more stationery ideas, see our blog and join us on facebook. Happy Mailing

The William Arthur Weddings Album Volume Three showcases some unique, brand new inspiring designs including this Ecru heavy weight bristol foil stamped navy blue painted edge card our client chose for her October wedding taking place in San Francisco at the City View at the Metreon!

This gold foil card is breathtaking with the couple’s name in large script fonts and the rest of the invite in block lettering. This makes an attractive and impressive invitation to a luxurious affair. The details are striking including the navy blue edges to the heavy weight bristol ecru card stock from William Arthur. The back of the card is plain ecru. Our couple, Shilpa & Blake also chose the matching gold foil polka dot design envelope liner (cost $25/25 lined envelopes).

Jacques addressed the couple’s invitation envelopes with Hyegraph’s Elegant Digital Calligraphy for Envelope Addressing (cost $1.00 per envelope). The couple also chose the printed envelopes with the Hindu Ganesha Symbol for the return envelope addressing (cost $716 for 25 invitations with single envelope printed).

This invitation is rich with detail and lavish with gold foils and painted edges. Together with the lined envelopes (gold polka dots, image not shown) and the printed Hindu Ganesha Symbol make a statement of refined taste and simultaneous opulence.
